The knowledge and skills required

Well versed in the complex technical procedures of their specialism, job holders will have undergone dedicated formal education/training in the development of their expertise. This level is also appropriate for those with graduate level qualifications conferring a theoretical understanding of their field, but without a great deal of specific experience.

While the majority of roles will have demands for manual dexterity in relation to typing and similar functions, other jobs will use a range of equipment requiring precision in their use and handling.

Thinking, planning and communication

Job holders will need to make judgements as well as creative choices related to the tasks they carry out and the advice or guidance they give others. Problems are likely to crop up quite regularly and their solutions will come from both standard practice guidelines and reliance upon job holders’ technical expertise in their particular discipline. Job holders will deal with many day-to-day issues but will also be required to plan ahead several weeks ahead to achieve personal and team goals.

The terminology used within job holders’ specialism can be a barrier to communication, so job holders will need to exercise their interpersonal skills to effectively exchange factual information with a range of audiences. Job holders will help others understand issues and make choices, guide & advise, offer choices and suggest alternatives.
